Hmm, I thought I'd just catch up on the weekend here instead of going back to last week.

Sat ended up as I had planned, and the scallops were just yummy. I sauteed them in a little olive oil with some garlic and mushrooms, added about 1/4 cup of wine to finish. Served with couscous and broccoli. I also made - for DH - a pear cranberry crisp type thing from Cooking Light. It was made there as a pie with an oatmeal strudel topping. I figured we didn't need the bottom crust, so left it off. He loves it! I had one spoonful and found it too tart, but his recommendation is a large piece, warm, with vanilla ice cream.

Sunday:
B: Crepes with hot apple and raisin "sauce," and spoonful of yogurt,
S: FF latte
L: Small turkey and cheese (good old Kraft 2% slice) sandwich on homemade roll (small) with mustard
D: Vegetarian pizza out with friends, 2 slices.
S: V8 juice and 7 Kashi TLC crackers

It was a day right on calorie wise (1500-1700, cause I had to estimate the pizza) but it could have used some more fruit/veggies.

Today:
B: 1 cup cheerios with 1% milk,about 1/2 cup cantalope, slice of ww toast with smear of pb,
S: ff latte (the coffee shop is too conveniently between the library and city hall, where I go at least 3 days a week)
L: Lean cuisine santa fe style beans and rice dumped over a huge plate of romaine lettuce, with salsa added; small ww tortilla
S: unsweetened applesauce, maybe a graham cracker
D: Leftovers: either scallops or curried pork with couscous or rice, broccoli

I have been struggling royally. 1 good day, 3 bad ones. I have been struggling with depression all summer and I think I have just slid into it the past couple months. Self sabotaging like crazy. It's no longer enough to keep trigger foods out of the house because apparently EVERYthing is a trigger food at the moment. When I was running I was able to kid myself that the sabotage wasnt that bad, but now there is nothing to hide behind. my fitday weight chart is a nice steady uphill climb.

Sorry this is such a whiny post.

B: eggbeater omelet - lowfat cheese, 10 oz v8
S: 6 oz plain yogurt, apple

Ennay, I am right with you on the off days and trigger foods.

Thursday addendum so far (and I'm still at work):
S - fun size almond joy (91), fun size hershey bar (90), 5 minis mix bars (200), piece of bubble gum (15)

That's 396 extra calories so far. However, I feel kind of gross after eating the hershey bar, and I haven't eaten my planned apple and yogurt yet and may not eat them at all.
